Jean Jacques Rousseau,

Lettres sur la botanique

Comment reconnaître les différentes parties d’une fleur? Qu’est-ce qu’une Scrofulaire? À quelle famille de plantes appartient la Ciguë? Comment réaliser un herbier dans les règles de l’art? Dans ces huit lettres à l’érudition teintée de poésie, Rousseau nous invite à examiner la nature et se fait le «décodeur amusé» d’un monde végétal foisonnant et mystérieux.

«Il n’y a rien de compliqué ni de difficile à suivre dans ce que j’ai à vous proposer. Il ne s’agit que d’avoir la patience de commencer par le commencement.»
